The Student Health Center provides low-cost health services to any enrolled Pepperdine student, regardless of insurance type. A student's initial visit each semester is $70 and each subsequent visit within the semester ranges between $15 to $50, depending on the level of services rendered. Labs, prescriptions, and specialty services are additional charges; however, the SHC strives to keep fees as low as possible.
Although the SHC does not bill insurance directly, it provides a walkout statement (superbill) to patients as well as directions regarding how to seek reimbursement from their insurance plan. Students have the option of billing their student account or paying by cash or check. PPO plans typically reimburse SHC services at out of network rates while HMO, MediCal, and MediCare plans generally do not reimburse.
